Raising the Bar

As Siva Vaidhyanathan points out on Sivacracy, the Center for Public Integrity has produced The War Card, which provides an information graphic that represents "False Statements by Month" from White House sources about allegedly Iraqi involvement in Al Qaeda and the production of weapons of mass destruction. This quantitative representation of information is presented in a PowerPoint-style bar chart, a genre from corporate rhetoric that also played a part in making a case for war to begin with.

The group also offers a database of false statements with a handy search engine here.
